CannabisNewsBreaks – Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) Responds to Cole Memo Repeal

Emerging-stage pharmaceutical and IP development company Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) this morning issued a follow-up statement to the memorandum issued by Attorney General Jeff Sessions on January 4, 2018, concerning marijuana enforcement and the repeal of the Cole Memo. In the update, Veritas noted that the AG’s decision largely relates to the recreational cannabis marketplace, in which individual states have allowed sales over the last 24 months. Conversely, the company notes, it does not affect the medical cannabis marketplace. As such, Veritas intends to build on its commitment to advancing the science of medical cannabis in the U.S. states where it is currently legal. Through majority-owned subsidiary Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd., Veritas will continue to support the growing demand for reliable medical grade cannabis aimed at treating a range of conditions, including pain, nausea, epilepsy and PTSD. The company will also continue to actively engage with advisors at both the state and federal levels to provide assistance to government officials regarding the policymaking initiatives currently shaping the medical cannabis market across the United States.

CannabisNewsBreaks – Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) to Leverage Unique Compound Synergies for Pain Moderation

Based on evidence that cannabinoids and opioids can work in synergy to moderate pain, Veritas Pharma (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) and its research arm, Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd., intend to boost actions of opioid analgesics with a specific strain of cannabis. A recent article highlights the company’s approach in developing quality strains, stating, “Veritas Pharma employs a scientific approach to support medical cannabis claims and is intent on developing and commercializing the most effective strains of cannabis for medical use. The company is concerned that, with the rapid growth of the medical cannabis industry, product quality is inconsistent and scientific proof of effectiveness is lacking. By forming strategic alliances and partnerships within the industry, the company intends to address this issue. Its approach to research and development is aimed firstly at chemically profiling the various cultivars of cannabis. As a second step, each cultivar is pharmacologically profiled to identify strains for specific diseases before clinical trials are undertaken to establish each cultivar’s utility and efficacy. By using this approach, Veritas will provide physicians and patients the scientific evidence necessary to enable them to use its products with confidence.”

Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP) Aims to Enhance Opioid Analgesic Effects with Specific Cannabis Strain

  • Unique scientific approach lends more credibility and increases consumer confidence
  • Huge potential for cannabis to replace opioids as analgesics
  • Strategic partnerships position Veritas strongly in the medical cannabis industry

On September 13, 2017, Cannevert Therapeutics Ltd. (“CTL”), the research arm of Veritas Pharma Inc. (CSE: VRT) (OTC: VRTHF) (FRT: 2VP), filed a provisional patent for the use of a specific strain of cannabis to enhance the actions of opioid analgesics. Opioid analgesics are traditionally prescribed for relief of acute and chronic pain. However, over-prescription or prolonged use can lead to addiction. Recreational users of opioids commonly run the risk of fatal overdose, with more than 33,000 deaths from opioid overdose reported in 2015, according to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Cannabinoids found in cannabis provide similar pain relief to opioids, but without the side effects and fatality risk. There is evidence that cannabinoids and opioids can work in synergy to moderate pain. As restrictions on the use of cannabis are eased, there is tremendous potential for cannabis to provide a safe alternative to opioids as an analgesic.

Veritas Pharma employs a scientific approach to support medical cannabis claims and is intent on developing and commercializing the most effective strains of cannabis for medical use. The company is concerned that, with the rapid growth of the medical cannabis industry, product quality is inconsistent and scientific proof of effectiveness is lacking. By forming strategic alliances and partnerships within the industry, the company intends to address this issue. Its approach to research and development is aimed firstly at chemically profiling the various cultivars of cannabis.
